Daruvala, who races for Team Prema started from second place on the grid and took the lead of the race at the start. He had a comfortable lead of 1.5 seconds over second placed Niko Kari, who started in pole position, before the safety car was deployed for the second time in the race. The Indian racer lost a few second after the restart but was still able to maintain the lead and won the race 2.1 seconds ahead of Juri Vips.

The Formula 3 Championship was launched this year as a feeder series to Formula 2 and Formula 1 and includes 2 races per weekend. The series was created by merging the F3 European Championship and GP3 Championship. A total of 10 teams take part in F3. Each team has 3 drivers.

Didn't Karun Chandok win a GP2 race? National Anthem would have been played then too. GP2 is the present F2.

Yes that is correct. Actually he won twice in GP2 - Spa Francorchamps, Belgium 2007 and at Hockenheim in 2008

Indian National Anthem did play on both PD - videos below

I think Narain and Krishnaraj had won F3 events as well. I would think that was in the UK.

Hope there is again a Indian driver in a Formula 1 team, Arjun and Jehan are the prospects now. Be it Formula 2,3 or E; it's always feels good to hear Indian national anthem.
